    My episode finally goes live this week in Canada (CBC). Not allowed to talk about the outcome, but being on the show will finally put Str8ts on the world stage as the true mass market rival to Sudoku. (2.5 million viewers)

    We are anticipating a tidal wave of activity after the show. We printed 20 000 books and we are worried that it won't be enough. We could get as many as 50 000 emails that week


    Wish me luck I am going to need it.

    Here is a preview of the dragon's fighting over my product. (Nasty stuff)

    I'm not a dev and I don't get this show in the US, but, I have your game and have posted a review on iTunes. I'd love to see the outcome from the show. Please post a link so we could all witness your TV debut!

    Jeff -

    I'll be looking forward to this. I don't get this program on my cable so I'll be looking forward to the youtube video. Hopefully this will put you and Andrew on the map with the big boys. You both deserve it for a phenomenal puzzler!

    Just finished watching your segment on the show - you did amazingly compared to most of the people who come onto the show. Great job and congratulations! :D

    Sorry if I spoiled it EssentialParadox. :(

    That's really cool, congrats.

    You really need to clear up or put example on your site because I just went there and after just reading your rules, I had absolutetly no clue what I was supposed to do :)

    Yeah, I also went and I didn't really understand it. Maybe a quick 30 second video tutorial? I think that would REALLY help out!

    since i don't know the show (sitting in germany)

    this is a real deal you negotiated there? $150k for 10% shares on what you make on str8ts?

    and this happens on tv? weird.. and interesting :)

    i liked how they jumped at each other :) seems like a nice show..

    well congrats on the money.. why where you not smiling at the end?

    10% share to high?

    I really don't think the share was too high. I dunno how different the Canadian version of the show is from the UK one, but here it's 50% offers 9 times out of 10. I've never seen an offer this good. Congratulations! I know how hard you've worked for this and I cant wait to see it become a success.
     
  18. Great job on the presentation and answering their questions. Very impressive to watch them falling over themselves to do a deal.

    Can you tell us anything about your progress since then? Did you get the money yet? How many newspapers are carrying it now?

    BTW, why did everyone on the show, including you, pronounce it "suh-DOO-koe"?

    It's "soo-DOE-koo". ;)

    Congratulations, that was a pretty cool segment. Good luck with getting Str8ts out there. If it works out for you, you'll be in those seats in a couple years.
